Career Services invites students to submit internship photos to annual contest, win a $100 gift card
By Ben Lawson, media assistant
Northwest Missouri State University students have the opportunity to show off their internships and win a $100 Visa gift card.
Students can submit photos from their internships to win the $100 gift card now through Aug. 15. Photos will be displayed on the Career Services website and should depict the student in an environment pertaining to his or her internship. Past photos have included students swimming with sharks, teaching overseas or doing field research.
Photos must be taken between Aug. 29, 2011, and Aug. 15, 2012. Students may upload photos by logging in to the Career Services website. Entries should include a caption and 300-word description of what makes the internship interesting. Anyone can view the photos on the Career Services webpage.
A panel of judges will be appointed by Career Services to select a winning photo.
“It’s kind of a fun, engaging thing for students,” Rosalie Weathermon, career development coordinator, said. “It’s a learning experience because of the writing attachment with it. Also, students get to share their accomplishments with the community and hopefully other students will be inspired by their success.”
Career Services began the photo contest in 2008 as a way to draw attention to Northwest students participating in a variety of learning opportunities. The contest is open to all students in credit and non-credit internships, field experience, practicum or other similar experiences.
